Rescue Meds Available for Seizures?
Hi @lynette1975 that is great you have found a solution at the moment for your seizures.
I thought I would tag fellow Connect members @jakedduck1 @debirwin and @1964chevyz as they have experience with epilepsy and may be able to offer you support and share their experience.
Back to you @lynette1975 what has your research shown so far? Do you have an idea as to when you will be seeing an epileptologist?

@ethanmcconkey Thank you for the introductions. I have been doing a lot of research. It makes no since that I had a grand mal after 16 yrs of taking my meds. I'd occasionally have petit mals but they where minor and lasted maybe a second or two before this happened. Now they last much longer and that's why I'm extremely anxious about having another grand mal. So far, I have learned that hormones may play a role. I am 44 and going through premenopause. Could be an underlying infection. A little background, I had encephalitis 32 years ago. So that may have something to do with it. Hopefully the epileptologist will have answers. I don't have a scheduled appointment yet. Hopefully I will hear from them today. Thanks 💜
